Top OSD leader mulls County Council run

On the eve of the start of qualifying, the Oconee School Board chairman has confirmed talk in Seneca that he’s contemplating a run for the County Council District Three seat. He’s Andy Inabinet, retired principal and an eight-year county school trustee. At noon tomorrow, those Seneca area residents wanting to succeed the late Archie Barron may begin to file with the Oconee Elections office. Inabinet considered running for the seat four years ago, but stayed on the sideline and was a Barron supporter. If Inabinet takes the plunge, he’ll offer as a Republican. And that’ll make for a special GOP primary in advance of the special election—provided attorney Paul Cain makes good on his announcement that he, too, will run on the Republican ticket.
